Advanced education programs (except where indicated) accept the UMKC Application Form. International applicants must use the UMKC International Application for Admission. These forms are available from the Office of Student Programs of the School of Dentistry or at the www.umkc.edu/dentistry/assets/forms/advancededucation.htm Web site. The application and required supporting documents should be sent to the chairman of the Advanced Education Committee, c/o Office of Student Programs, at the address at the beginning of this section. In addition, the programs in advanced education in general dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and pediatric dentistry also accept the Postdoctoral Application Support Services (PASS) application. Information on the application support service and application form is available from the Office of Student Programs of the School of Dentistry at the address at the beginning of this section, at http://www.adea.org, and at the admissions phone numbers at the beginning of this section. All required PASS materials should be submitted with the completed PASS application to: PASS 1625 Massachusetts Ave. N.W.

  • 3. Graduate dental certificate programs in endodontics, orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, oral and maxillofacial radiology and periodontics, require the UMKC application and the associated supplemental information that was previously indicated . This application material should be sent to: Chairman, Advanced Education Committeec/o Office of Student ProgramsUMKC School of Dentistry650 E. 25th St.Kansas City, MO 64108-2795 The remaining graduate dental certificate programs (i.e., advanced education in general dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and pediatric dentistry) require either a UMKC application (and associated supplemental information) or application through the Postdoctoral Application Support Services (PASS). A completed PASS application and other materials required by the service should be sent to the address given on the application or as provided earlier. The PASS application should not be sent to UMKC. Be aware that approximately three weeks is required by the service to process PASS applications and deliver them to the designated programs. The length of this processing period should be considered by the candidate in order to meet relevant application deadlines. The graduate certificate programs in oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics and pediatric dentistry participate in the National Matching Services (MATCH) process. Candidates to these programs must also submit to MATCH completed Applicant Agreement and Rank Order List forms by the deadline dates established by MATCH. There are two phases of the MATCH process, each with its deadline date for receipt of Rank Order List forms from applicants. The Phase I deadline (typically toward the end of November each year) is for applicants to the orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics program. The Phase II deadline (typically in the middle of January annually) is for those applying for admission to the oral and maxillofacial surgery and pediatric dentistry programs. Necessary forms to participate in the MATCH process may be obtained from: National Matching Services595 Bay StreetSuite 300Toronto, Ontario M5G 2C2 Requirements and Procedures for Admission Admission to a graduate dental certificate program is competitive. Primary focus is on the applicant's academic record while in dental school, including national board scores. Emphasis also is placed on information gathered from letters of evaluation and curriculum vitae (such as quality of professional practice experience, continuing education experience, research activities, leadership and involvement and participation in professional societies and community service). Another fundamental source of information is supplied from a personal on-site interview that is required of most programs and is by invitation. Applicants to a graduate dental certificate program must hold a D.D.S. degree or equivalent from a program accredited either by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CDA) or the Canadian Dental Accrediting Commission (CDAC). Graduates of foreign dental schools, however, are eligible to apply for admission only to the certificate programs in oral and maxillofacial radiology . Admission The Advanced Education Committee (AEC) serves as the admission review board for each of the graduate dental certificate programs. Each program has its own admission review board. At a minimum, the admission review board consists of the respective program director and at least two other full-time faculty members. Each program's admission review board submits its recommendations for acceptance to the AEC for consideration. Recommendations for acceptance include those identified as prime candidates (equal in number to the number of available residencies in the program) and those who serve as "alternates." Acceptance or denial of each recommended candidate is made by the AEC. Financial Assistance Eligible advanced education students (i.e., those who have earned a D.D.S. or D.M.D. degree from a Commission on Dental Accreditation or Canadian Dental Accrediting Commission accredited program or who hold valid licenses to practice dentistry in one or more states of the United States) in the graduate certificate program of endodontics, general dentistry, oral and maxillofacial radiology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, pediatric dentistry and periodontics receive an annual financial assistance based on patient treatment fees. Eligible graduate students in general dentistry, orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, periodontics and endodontics, participate in an incentive-based clinical income sharing program; 33 percent of the net fees collected for clinical treatment provided by a resident in one of these programs will be paid to the student. Net collected clinical fees
  • 4. are defined as gross clinical fees collected less scheduled laboratory fees incurred as a part of the treatment procedures and less any waivers granted (except those authorized for payment to the resident by the assistant dean for clinical programs). Financial aid for advanced education students is also available in the form of a limited number of Chancellor's Non- Resident Awards or graduate research assistantships. The Chancellor's Non-Resident Award provides for the non- resident tuition only (i.e., the difference between Missouri resident and nonresident fees), while the graduate research assistantship includes a stipend plus an award equivalent to the basic education fees (at regular graduate student fee rate and not at the graduate dental student fee rate) for 6 hours of graduate credit for both Fall and Winter semesters. Both categories of awards are made on a competitive basis, with quality of academic record as a major criterion. History of research experience or potential for research in the graduate program also serves to identify candidates for the graduate research assistantship. Other forms of financial aid may be available from federal loan programs (depending on whether or not lending limits have been reached) or from other funding agencies. Students= Right-to-Know Statement In accordance with Public Law 101-542, UMKC reports 72 percent of its first time full-time degree-seeking freshmen return the second year. The UMKC Police Department publishes an annual campus report on personal safety and crime. The report is available on request from the UMKC Police Department, Room 213, 4825 Troost or via the Web site: www.umkc.edu/police.
